The style could be described as a mixture of Andy Warhol work with a duo-tone picture of the character and the inside work could be linked to a sophisticated Keith Haring work : just one line and infinite characters, silouhettes and other fancy stuff.
The first painting of the continuous line serie was done in 2009, but the merging of the technic with the portrait drawing was done in May 2010 for the first time in Kerry (Ireland), when i first tried to use indian ink with a stick of wood (recycled painting brush). The idea was to keep the technique simple : one line, one color, and that’s it!
The silent World is an underwater experience about the silent World of the fish. The whole series is based on fish characters with human behavior. Originally started with Big size canvas, representing the crowd effects, the series have been evolving towards much smaller work including an original background pattern like the aboriginal drawings : little dots and shapes done with a stick end. Buyers and collectors called the artworks as lucky charm, the kind of thing a St Brigid cross can bring to your home. All testified that painting by the painting make them smile.
